2019/12 Newsletter

Thank you for your support in 2019; I wish you all the best for 2020

Review of 2019

It has been a busy year on the research front, with information being provided to relatives and friends of former 35 Squadron personnel and to various organisations and researchers.

There are nearly 1,400 pages of data on the website, which now includes summary details of all the WWII Crews.

I would like to thank all those who have shown an interest in the project, especially those that have sent photographs, documents or stories for inclusion on the site.

Obviously the most memorable event was in May this year, when the memorial stone (to remember all those that served with the squadron) was unveiled at the International Bomber Command Centre.

Once again, I would like to thank those who contributed towards the cost of the stone.
